"The DOT conducted tests that determined that the brakes could maintain a stationary car or bring one to a full stop even with the engine racing."

Anyone who believes this BS needs to watch this video.

Looked like the Toyota stopped to me, just took more distance.
And he was only using his left leg which is likely weaker.

BS to your BS.

Unless someone’s dumb enough (why?) to intentionally fade the brakes by repeatedly applying and disengaging them against full-throttle acceleration (yes, you can intentionally damage your brakes that way). What the fool in the video did. (Again, why?)

Simple question: What’s the 0-60 vs. 60-0 time of your car? There’s your answer to brakes vs. engine. Brakes win. Every time.

OTOH, there’s no protection against being stupid. A Darwin Prize awaits.
